What Are PHIT KIDS?

PHIT KIDS are children who used to be inactive or sedentary who have 'jump-started' their active lifestyles by being physically active at least 3 times a week 60 minutes each day.  This is also the level of activity used by the Physical Activity Council. PHIT KIDS can either be children who are already active to healthy standards or those who are now. PHIT America strongly agrees with international respected organizations like the CDC and WHO that every child should be active 60 minutes per day 7 days as week. Learn more about these organization's goals HERE.

By increasing a child's physical activity, they will improve their health and academic performance in school.

There are 10 million children in the USA who are total couch potatoes. They are not active once in any of 104 different sports or activities we track every year.  There are 33 million children who are not active to 'healthy standards' or 3 times a week or more. And, 80% of all children are at risk of disease due to physical inactivity. Sitting has become the new smoking.

PHIT World is helping these inactive kids become PHIT KIDS - Healthier & Smarter. You can see all the physical benefits of activity for children when we get them active HERE. The 'learning advantage' for being more active is amazing. Check out all the research and expert opinions the how physical activity is the 'Miracle-Gro For The Brain' HERE.

Physical Education Creates More Kids Who Are Active Outside of School

It is one thing to get a kid active in school 3 or times a week. But what do they do when they go home. The chart below is the 7 year proof of the value of physical education. Surveying 40,000 Americans over 7 years, we found two groups, those who had no PE (red bars) and those who have PE in school(blue bars). Then, we asked them what activities they participated in outside of school.

Wow, look at the impact of PE in school. It is the grassroots physical activity program for ALL activity in America.
